The Canadian jazz piano player with Swiss roots, Félix Stüssi, presents his third album, Hieronymus. Stüssi and his loyal sidemen - Alexandre Côté and Bruno Lamarche, saxophones, Clinton Ryder, bass, and Isaiah Ceccarelli, drums  - invite everybody on a musical adventure where every composition is a story, told with virtuosity, wit and sensibility.
The title tune is inspired by the intriguing work of the dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch (ca. 1450–1516). At the doorstep to the Renaissance, Bosch has created a uniquely phantastic universe using revolutionary techniques, notably that of colouration. Stüssi translates this ambiance into colours of sound and, like Bosch, reaches a resolutely modern artistic expression while staying firmly rooted in the jazz tradition. Hieronymus is the second album that has sprung from the fruitful collaboration with the great American trombonist Ray Anderson.

We would like to dedicate this CD to the memory of Len Dobbin, great jazz aficionado and broadcaster, who died on the very evening of our concert at the Upstairs in Montréal.
